The festive season is not always a time of celebration for families in crisis and on the brink of a relationship breakdown or marriage split. Research has shown that the stress of trying to have the perfect “chocolate box” Christmas when you are simply no longer happy in your relationship can bring the end of a relationship to a head. Increased time spent under one roof coupled with greater alcohol consumption mean Christmas can be a time when strained; difficult or abusive relationships collapse completely.
The New Year is traditionally a time for reflection on personal happiness, often through new resolutions and hopes of fresh beginnings. We want to make positive changes to our lives. Due to these factors January is usually the busiest time for Divorce Lawyers or Family Law Solicitors whose services are called upon by people in crisis. January 8th 2018 was dubbed “Divorce Day” according an article in The Independent, because of a spike in the numbers of couples considering ending their marriage after the festive period. Children too can become the unintended victims and are frequently used as pawns in custody and financial battles. They sadly witness domestic abuse and violence.
